I'm trying to figure out how to create a training
simulation with an interactive command prompt. The application I'm
teaching is command-line based only with no GUI. I notice that I
can have a text bar up top, above the command prompt window, but I
want the students to type right at the place they normally would
inside the window. If I create a text box it looks totally fake,
and I can't even drag it down completely to the bottom of the
window to line it up with the prompt.
If I understand you correctly, your only option might be to
create it yourself. But ... how hard can that be? Create an image
of a black rectangle with white letters left-aligned, appropriate
to the command prompt and its text display ...
